James "Jinx" Lennon (born 20 August 1964 in Dundalk, Co. Louth)[1] is an Irish punk poet[2] and urban poet[3] from Dundalk Co. Louth. He has released 8 albums with songs on a broad range of themes.[4][5][6] He uses a rap-like vocal style.[7] In October 2016, he released two new albums: Magic Bullets of Madness to Uplift the Grief Magnets and Past Pupil Stay Sane. Lennon says he found himself in a "bind" because he hated the characters he wrote about on his previous album, Trauma Themes, Idiot Times, and that it was too pessimistic.[8]
